Jealousy of pregnancy
Hi all. I'm 13 weeks pregnant with my first bio. My 14.5 year old (immature ) stepdaughter is excited but I'm starting to see jealous behaviors. She wants to make decisions (crib , wall paint ), and now bc we are painting the nursery , she all of a sudden wants her room repainted , even though we painted it when we moved in a few years ago and were clear that was it. My husband is caving and thinks we should paint her room bc "she's older now and likes new colors." Whatever. I told him fine but it's on y'all and also told him to talk to his daughter and let her know that the baby will be getting things that she will not. Babies need stuff and currently the baby has nothing. Husband refuses to talk about this w his daughter bc he didn't see it as jealousy. I told him fine I'll talk to her about it then. Paint her room if you want but I'll tell her the expectation- baby will be getting a lot of stuff and she won't. I don't know what else to do. But there needs to be realistic expectations. What do you think?
